I was charged with first degree murder and 3 counts of conspiracy to commit murder. I plead guilty to conspiracy to commit murder. So, I would like to know is conspiracy to commit murder in Maryland a misdemeanor or a felony?
Conspiracy is a misdemeanor in Maryland, but it carries the same max penalty as the underlying crime, which would be life for first-degree murder. You should consult with your attorney for more details.
This is a general response that should not be considered legal advice. No attorney-client relationship has been formed. Please speak with an attorney in more detail about your specific situation.
It's a misdemeanor. Therefore, for conviction purposes, that is what it is; however, conspiracy to commit any offense can be punished by the same sentence that is possible for the offense you conspire to commit. So, even though it's a misdemeanor on your record, you face the maximum possible sentence for first degree murder.
